Plantronics P590 Mic not working

I have a Plantronics P590 headset but I can't get the mic to work. The device is paired and I hear sound through it. The bluetooth headset service and advanced audio services are connected on my PC. I hear a 3 beep pattern repeating every 5 seconds which isn't listed in the manual. I have pressed the mic mute button with short and long presses but nothing seems to work.

Does anybody have any ideas what I need to do to use the mic?

Thanks

    I am having similar problem

    Unfortunately I have the same problem and have been unable to find a solution. I use my headset with both the PC and a Jabra bluetooth phone hub. Obviously without the microphone it's totally useless as a phone headset. Anyone any ideas at all?

What to check if Plantronics cordless mic does not work but earpiece works fine


If the party you call cannot hear you, check two things:

1- while on phone with the party, change the configuration dial on the headset base to 1. (We have Nortel phones and it must be on 1 for headset and mic to work with Nortel phone sets.)
2- Push IN on the headset volume control. Pushing IN activates or deactivates to MUTE feature on the headset.

Hope this tip helps you.

Trying to hook my bluetooth headset to my playstation three what do i need to do


Bluetooth Headset Setup
A Bluetooth headset has to be registered, or "paired", with your PS3 before it can be used.
Make sure your Bluetooth headset is fully charged before you begin.
Check your headset instructions for entering "pairing mode". Activate your headsets' "pairing mode" so it can be recognized by the PS3.
On the Cross Media Bar (or XMB) of the PS3 go to the "Settings" tab, then down into "Accessory Settings", then down into "Manage Bluetooth Devices".
With your headset in pairing mode, follow the onscreen instructions and let the PS3 scan for your headset. When your headset is found, follow the prompts and enter a pass key (if necessary- the default is usually 0000 for all brands). The pairing should now be complete.
If you're using a USB (wired) headset, just plug it into one of the ports on the front of the PS3 (the system should auto-detect the USB headset).
Mic Test and Volume Setting
After pairing a Bluetooth headset, or after plugging in a USB (wired) headset, return to the XMB. Go to "Accessory Settings" and choose "Audio Device Settings". You can test your headset here.
Your headset should appear as the audio input/output device. If not, just use the D-pad to highlight the Input line, then scroll until you see yours. Any microphone you have used with your PS3 will be listed, but only the current one will be available to select.
Set the "Microphone Level" to 3. You can change the level any time if needed.
Speak into the headset, and the level bar at the top of the screen should move at the sound of your voice.
You can also view a list of Bluetooth accessories you have registered in the "Manage Bluetooth Devices" tab under "Settings".
If your mic doesn't appear there then try pairing it again.
There are more ways to configure the audio input and output that can be useful:
Set the input to (your mic) and leave the output on (default)- one person can chat with the other players, and the replys will play over your TV speakers rather than into your mic. Great when sharing one console because everyone can hear the team talk.
Set the input and output to (default)- you will hear the game sound and voice chat through your TV speakers but won't be able to talk back. Great if you don't have a headset, or if you want the room to hear the team chat.
Set the output to (default) to use stereo headphones with your TV or receiver. Then set the input to (your mic) and you can chat while wearing stereo headphones. Keeping the mic close to your face could be a problem since both ears are already taken! You could try a USB desktop mic and see if that works.
In Game XMB:
All of the functions in Audio Device Settings are available when using the XMB via the PS button during a game. You can set the input/output, mic level, and device. You can test your mic, and pair a new BT headset while in game.

Mic not working (plantonics headset)


Your exterior mic MAY have been the one ACTUALLY working rather than the one on the headset. Some mics require a battery for the mic part to work, Not sure about your particular Plantronics. If it has a battery, then check the battery as the receiver part does not use it but the mic MAY use it.
